Louis Page was the first former England international to take charge at Yeovil, a feat repeated by Graham Roberts many years later. Louis was born on Merseyside in 1899 and went through the youth ranks at Everton. He played for Stoke City and Northampton Town, before settling at Burnley where he made 248 appearances and scored 111 goals. This brought him to the attention of Manchester United, who paid £1000 for him in March 1932, and also England. He made 7 full England appearances in 1927, scoring once.

He came to Yeovil as player manager, and was top scorer at the Huish in 1933/34 season with 23 goals. In 1934/35 season he won the Southern League Western Section and the Western League Division 1 titles. He went on to manage Newport County and Glentoran in Northern Ireland. After the war he took the reins at Swindon Town for eight years between 1945 and 1953 before ending his managerial career at Chester.

He died on 11th October 1959 in his native Merseyside aged 60.
